Paper Abstract

Images of the head, torso, and limbs have been obtained using the nuclear magnetic reso-nance (NMR) of hydrogen. Images are presented and the imaging technique and apparatus are described. The mode of imaging, a spin warp 2-D Fourier transform technique with T1 discrimi-nation through partial saturation, is discussed and shown to be less demanding of field homogeneity than other techniques. The radio-frequency (RF) magnetic fields and pulsed field gradients are shown to be below the recommended limits for power deposition and induced electric fields.
